    Research Description
    My research focus on the musculoskeltal (MSK) system, more specifically on tendon, its biology and how it related to other tissues of the MSK system. Tendons have historically been studied to a lesser extent than bones and muscles, and there is a lot we do not know about it. Tendons are difficult to heal, and we can only improve tendon healing by knowing more about it and about the tendon cells, called "tenocytes".
